The artist watches a woman in her hometown in Siberia cleaning a carpet with snow. Veronica remembers that, when she was a child, this event seemed like a celebration or a game to her when something private, in this case a carpet, that could be found in any regular Soviet interior, was suddenly placed on the white snow in the public space. Today this old custom is perceived like an uncanny mystic ritual. The video is in the collection of the NCCA Moscow, edition 1/8.
